My kitty had two stones surgically removed from her bladder on Wed....She has not had a bowl movement since then and has been hiding under my bed or in the basement (which is something she only does when she is hurt or not feeling well.) Last night she vomited three times. I was quite worried. Intestinal obstruction? Infection brewing? I didn't know but felt she should be re-checked. My husband told me to call the vet, which i did and the vet said she wanted us to bring her in. Then all hell broke loose. My husband started ranting and raving about how I'm going to kill him by causing him these worries. He said it would cost a fortune and they would run all kinds of tests and it was none of it necessary.
Fortunately my daughter was here to play referee and to try to get him to calm down. So we all got dressed and took the cat to the vet. We had to wait there for an hour but finally saw the vet who checked her out. She said that she needs to poop but was probably in too much pain to push a hardened stool out. So she gave her a dose of cephulac and sent us home with a bottle of it. It was a relief to hear there was nothing serious wrong. And the visit was free....it came under the fee for the surgery that we'd already paid.
UNfortunately on the way home my husband stopped for Dunkin Donuts and Pizza. I was starving so had two donuts and a slice of pizza. If I have a light dinner I will be okay for today. Last night I woke in the middle of the night. I struggled with temptation but called to mind yesterday's blog. I prayed for God's help and went back to bed and to sleep. So this morning I did not eat until 10:00. This schedule is much easier to keep than was the 8-12 noon one. It's not hard to wait til ten in the morning to eat.
I am optimistic that this will work for me.
